It was 2006 when I switched from being a lawyer into following a course in professional photography (School of Photography, Breda). After successfully ending this course, I work as an independent photographer. Being a portrait photographer I’m in search of distinctive aspects of the people I photograph. Everyone has a story, and from my interest in the stories behind people I like to make special documentary photos. Each photo moment provides in a healthy tension in anticipating on the desired result. The story behind the picture must be visible in each picture.
In 2010 I published my first book: 40+1, Portraits of Pinkpop Audience, in which visitors of this famous pop festival were presented in photos and interviews. Besides, as a photographer I like to participate in special initiatives. For instance being the house photographer of i-did, a slow fashion company based on circular principles and working with people with some distance to the labour market.
